The Pixar Ball, or the Luxo Ball, is a yellow ball with a blue stripe and red star that first appeared in the Luxo, Jr. short as a prop for Luxo, Jr. Since its debut, it has made numerous cameos in other Pixar films, most prominently in the Toy Story films.
In Red's Dream, the design and color scheme of the ball appears on the floor of the circus ring.
In Toy Story, the ball rolls down the hallway of Andy's house as Sarge helps a "wounded" soldier to an indoor plant. A little later, one of Andy's friends bounce that ball up the stairs to Andy's room. Later, when Buzz proves to the toys that he can "fly," he bounces off the ball when he jumps off from Andy's bed.
In Toy Story 2, the ball appears in a TV commercial for Al's Toy Barn. Later, after the toys enter the toy store, one of these ball can be seen on the floor to the left, and a whole container of those balls can be seen to the left of the door when exiting.
A scene from Luxo Jr. featuring the ball was also among the scenes that were flipped through by Hamm to find a commercial for Al's Toy Barn.
As stickers on the X-99 rocket toys in the Star Adventurer carnival game booth in Toy Story 4. It also appears in the Second Chance Antiques store when Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep, Ducky and Bunny prepare to enter through the roof.
On all the Pixar Family Build areas and packs in LEGO The Incredibles. A giant LEGO brick version of it is part of Luxo Jr.'s (called Junior) Pixar Family Build (which is unlocked after completing the other Pixar Family Builds; completing this one will unlock Junior himself) and the ball can be summoned by Junior as an attack item and during his idle animation.
As a power-up that can be formed by matching 5 pieces in an L or T-shape and used to remove all surrounding pieces in Toy Story Drop!, also in the background and part of the logo as the "o" in the word "Drop".
The ball looks exactly the same as the one in Blue's Clues, except the colors of the star and stripe are swapped.
The ball also looks exactly the same as the one in Rugrats, except the ball is green with an orange star and blue stripe. The stripe is sometimes purple. However, the ball appears with its correct colors in the Rugrats section of the Universal ride Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast
